There are certain essential accessories that pertain to virtually every musical instrument, and for French horns, mutes would definitely fall under that category. Regardless of age or skill level, every French hornist can benefit from keeping a mute or two in their gig bag. By placing a mute in the bell of your French horn, you can change the tone of your instrument in a variety of ways depending on the style of mute you're using and what you're using it for. As you browse this catalog, you'll see that mutes are available in many different sizes and are crafted from a wide variety of materials.

The most popular type French horn mute is the straight mute. These hollow, cone-shaped mutes produce a nasal-like sound that sounds especially piercing when performed loudly. If this sounds like what you're after, check out a best seller like the Balu Large Bell Series French Horn Straight Mutes. Available in walnut, red mahogany, amber and black onyx, this mute is ideal for the French hornist who wants a mute with top-notch sustain. It also features an inside brass tip to protect the mute from losing its shape due to everyday usage - and make no mistake, you'll be sure to use this beauty often.

Of course, not all mutes are for performance purposes, and the practice mute is an obvious example. As their name suggests, practice mutes are used mainly for honing your technique without disturbing others. If you're a French hornist who prefers to rehearse late at night, then a practice mute is essential. There are many terrific models here like the popular Denis Wick DW5530 French Horn Practice Mute. Known for its amazing intonation, this mute is suitable for French hornists of all skills and its superior workmanship makes for very comfortable practice sessions.

And there are many other top-notch straight and practice mutes that deserve your attention. In fact, you'll also want to take a closer look at the French horn stop mutes available here. Stop mutes can raise your French horn's pitch and companies like Denis Wick, Trumcor and Humes & Berg specialize in models. Whether you're looking for a mute to create a unique effect during a live performance or simply need one to practice at a low volume, the perfect French horn mute for you is waiting in these pages.
